In honor of the 215th birthday of the United States Marine Corps Band, The President's Own.

Founded in 1798 by an Act of Congress, “The President’s Own” United States Marine Band is America’s oldest continuously active professional musical organization. Today, “The President’s Own” is celebrated for its role at the White House and its dynamic public performances. “The President’s Own” encompasses the United States Marine Band, Marine Chamber Orchestra, and Marine Chamber Ensembles, and performs regularly at the White House and for more than 500 public performances across the nation each year.

Turn it up LOUD:

Amazing! Thanks for sharing. As a kid I took band and this was one of my dreams. Of course, my 6th grade band teacher not so kindly told me to move on to other interest because I was wasting my parents money. I still think it would be cool to be in such an amazing band performance at least once.
